Indigenous woman?

Maybe – or maybe not – just art that my second dentist (Ureña) likes or maybe a relative made. He has these in his lobby and 3 appear to be the same indigenous woman from behind but in different clothing and accessories. Whatever the story behind them, my first impression was good and I snapped photos with my phone. The other appears to be an early migrant from the Caribbean Islands to the Caribbean (Atlantic) Coast of Costa Rica, where most of the Afro-Costa Ricans live and have roots in Jamaica or other Caribbean Islands, originally brought here by Spaniards to work their banana and other farms. We have the largest Jamaican population outside of Jamaica.   🙂    Anyway, I think it is good art and I enjoy art!

And a local sense of humor at Tico Times Digital Newspaper:

Since all the people are staying at home, the native animals are reclaiming our Costa Rica parks, even Jurassic Park!   🙂    Or is that the lake in downtown San Jose’s Sabana Park?

  1. I like that art! Perhaps you also noted that in addition to Tico times reporting large critters reappearing, USA Today reports that The govt. is not letting anyone else enter the ISLAND! Sigh ?

  2. Steve, Thanks for alerting me of the dinosaurs, though I did see them again when I went to Tico Times. Cute!

    And, well, I would think most reporters know the difference in Puerto Rica and Costa Rica by now, but maybe not! 🙂 And by the way, both have their borders closed except for some airplanes. Here you cannot walk or drive across the border, so don’t try to drive down here – BUT you can fly here if you can find an airline coming. They just take your temperature at the airport.
